12:00 - WORKSHOP - Writing and reading maths : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
Introduces some standard mathematical language (notations) useful in all areas of maths. Being fluent with this language often enables you to make the transition from brain to paper with ease so you can demonstrate a logical flow of ideas. This will make your work clearer to those who assess it. Notations covered include sets and their operations, factorials, summations, quantifiers ("for all", "there exists"), logical implication and examples of good mathematical writing.

Recommended for anyone studying maths or stats units.

Topics in functions and graphs.
Tuesday 10
12:00 - WORKSHOP - Subspaces : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
In Linear Algebra, the concept and algebraic definition of a subspace can be difficult to visualise the first time you see them. In this workshop we match this algebraic definition to simple geometric properties based on vectors to build the foundations of an intuitive understanding of subspaces in general. We will discuss simple proofs and counter examples for test style questions and introduce the concept of Nullspace. Recommended for first year and higher level MATH students wishing to revise this topic.

13:00 - WORKSHOP - Maths for Humanities students Website | More Information
Tuesday 17
12:00 - WORKSHOP - Intro to Inferential Statistics : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
Inference (or hypothesis testing) is a widely used technique for assessing evidence from data so it gets covered in most introductory statistics or data analysis units. The good news is that all statistical tests follow the same underlying structure. In this workshop we explore this structure in a simple setting and demonstrate how it applies to some common statistical tests. Recommended for anyone studying introductory stats.
Wednesday 18
7:00 - COURSE - HBF Outdoor Fitness Sessions : Outdoor fitness sessions run at UWA - Free for HBF members Website | More Information
HBF Outdoor Fitness, presented by LiveLighter is back from mid September and is bigger and better than ever, with double the number of locations over a massive 6 month duration! And the best bit? Sessions are FREE for HBF members!

12:00 - WORKSHOP - Calculating limits (1 variable functions) : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
This sesssion introduces limits (left hand, right hand and limits at a point), including visual representations, and discusses a collection of tools to help you calculate limits. You will see that most limits can be calculated mentally and develop thought processes before writing down your workings. Many different examples will be given. Recommended for first year and higher level MATH students wishing to revise this topic.

13:00 - SEMINAR - CAREERS CENTRE- Consulate General of Japan - JET Programme Presentation : Info session for any students wanting to teach or work in local government in Japan Website | More Information
The application process for the 2014 Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme will be opening soon.

12:00 - EVENT - Calculating limits (2 variable functions) : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
This session uses our knowledge of 1-variable functions and their limits to define limits for 2-variable functions. After that we discuss the various different types of calculation required to establish whether a limit exists. Recommended for first year and higher level MATH students wishing to revise this topic.
Thursday 10
13:00 - WORKSHOP - Intro to Logarithms : MathsSmart, Student Services Website | More Information
We start to demystify the logarithm by exploring its definition with simple examples and finding its place in your mathematical toolkit. The rules for manipulating logarithm expressions (the "log laws") are introduced and used in standard test style questions. After that we demonstrate how logs can be used to solve equations with variables in their exponents (powers). Recommended for first year students and anyone who uses logarithms.
